Wine Information

About the wine

An elegant, balanced blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot. The Syrah brings flavours of juicy black fruit, black pepper spice and hints of smoke while the Petit Verdot offers the structure of strong tannins and dark berry aromas. The 2019 vintage received no less than 93/100 points from leading wine writer James Suckling

 

About the producer

The rich history of the Romitorio estate dates back to the Etruscans. More recently, in 1984, it was bought by the artist Sandro Chia who recognised the natural beauty of the site. Today, it’s managed by Filippo Chia who prioritises both maintaining traditional practices and sustainability through his work in pursuing organic certification.

 

About the region

Tuscany’s Montalcino area has a moderate warm climate and a unique landscape of olive groves, dark wooded areas and charming farmland. As a result of this incredible diversity, grapes grown here have remarkable complexity that really expresses the character of the land.
